If it wasn’t for the initial sores which came a few days after the encounter I probably wouldn’t be that worried about herpes. I have no idea, they swabbed the area and put it under a microscope. My genital areas has been examined by 2 nurses and a doctor on 3 seperate occasions and they haven’t come up with anything definitive. I stopped taking the anti viral medication. I’ll just have to wait another 2 months or so to get a blood test and find out the exact problem.
One more question, would heat make genital herpes worse? Cos that’s when the itching and tingling comes on, when it’s really hot and late at night too.
The sores did break the surface of the skin. They weren’t painful and healed really quickly. Those are the only sores I’ve seen. I did ask what they were when I visited the clinic and they brushed it off as nothing. It’s just too coincidental for me that they came a few days after the sexual encounter.
I’ve had tests for a UTI and STIs, the sexual health clinic and my doctor can’t seem to find what’s wrong. I tried anti virals for a few days and I thought they were working till today. The itching and tingling is back. It seems to get worse at night and when it’s warm. Do you have any idea what else it could be.
I do have low iron and pre diabetes, do you think that could be the cause?
